About Nicole

I am a fellow traveler, having been to 70 countries around the world. Of all the places I’ve seen, for us Marina Del Rey is heaven. Walking to beach for the nightly sunset, strolling the Venice pier to see the surfers up close, the best margarita at nearby Baja Cantina, a bike ride along the Venice Boardwalk. I live in New York City, but this is my dream home, the place I will retire to some day!

Nicole purchased this condo in 2014

Excellent Property, Great Owner, The Place You Want To Be

  • 5 of 5

A group of 8 friends and I stayed at "The Dream" for 3 nights and it lived up to its name. The property right on the beach and just a 2 block walk to the shops/restaurants of the boardwalk. Perfect location.

The unit itself is magnificent for a beach property. At many properties, the angle and way pictures are taken can be deceiving, but not for this unit. The living/dining room area is very large, the kitchen has everything you need and is well-stocked, and the bedrooms are all large with nice, king beds which is rare for a rental property.

As for the owner and housekeeper, they were great. They immediately respond to your booking requests and any other questions throughout your stay along with providing you upon booking and arrival with the necessary information concerning check-in and other information about the unit.

We were so pleased with the unit, I felt it was necessary for me to take the time and write this review to entice others to enjoy a vacation at a unit as spectacular as this one.

Location is perfect

  • 5 of 5

Its all about the location. LA traffic is a big factor in getting around and if you want to do the Northwest portion of LA, the beaches and Santa Monica this is the place to stay. Flying in I doubt you can find a better location from LAX. A very short walk to the beach and not a bad walk to Santa Monica which a few members of my party did. If you enjoy Oregon or Washington beaches and coast, imagine dropping a big city on the coast. The area has the feel of the beach but is big city too. I will be returning to Marina Del Ray and Venice Beach in future vacations and if my travel group is as large as this trip i'll rent this place again.

The condo is large and spacious, well stocked and was clean. It's showing its age but for 7 adults we had lots of space. Overall a great place for a relaxing vacation or as a central point for lots of outings.

What a great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures honestly don't do it justice. The location is just a stones throw away from the beach. The decor gives a great vibe. We had 7 guys on our stay and room was a nonissue. The owner provided great service. Highly recommend!

Great property and perfect location !

  • 4 of 5

The property was just perfect for the 6 adults ! Having 2 secure parking spots was a huge plus for sure!

The property manager was wonderful in getting the microwave/electrical fixed in one day (and on a busy friday !). Thank you SO MUCH for that !

We originally thought the place was a stand alone house - not realizing it is located within a large, secure, building. Only one night did we hear the ppl next door staying up quite late (and our flights were the next day) - but that is summer beach life.

Home is well stocked with everything you need - 4 bikes, all kitchen items, towels, etc..

Thank you !

Fun in the Sun

Fun place, good location. We really enjoyed our stay. The beds were a little bouncy but other than that we had a great time.

Looks better in the photos than in real life

  • 3 of 5

We found the house fine. Hoping for great. Several things were not clean when we arrived, like the kitchen trash can had old food caked all over the inside lid. I gave the owner feedback about this and she said the previous tenants had checked out late and the cleaning crew didn't have time to clean properly. However, upstairs carpeting was not vacuumed and stained. It felt dirty to be on it with bare feet. The appliances are old. There is no toaster and it takes a long time to make toast in the old toaster oven. The oven and microwave weren't working and it took a repairman several hours on our SECOND DAY to get them up and going. In the mean time we were unale to complete a meal we had planned the night before. Also, the big view window depicted in the photo actually has one whole panel clouded with white marks. It is unsightly and should definitely be replaced. I mentioned all these issues to the owner and she credited us $100. She seems very nice but we wouldn't stay there again.

Owner's Response: This guest asked for a discount before she even booked. Then she arrived early on her check-in date. The cleaners told her they needed another hour to finish. She came back in 30 minutes. Then she complained that the house wasn't clean and asked for more discounts. Sigh.
